Tonight, a slender 10% crescent Moon will leap up from the horizon to join the super-bright Venus and Jupiter.
Tomorrow, Dec. 1st, will be the best night of all. The now-15% crescent Moon moves in closer to form an isosceles triangle with Venus and Jupiter as opposing vertices. The three brightest objects in the night sky will be gathered so tightly together, you can hide them all behind your thumb held at arm's length.
So get out there people, and look up.
